Things are gawdawful. The financial markets, industries, employmees, employers, homeowners, merchants, international and national and local businesses and purt' near everyone else has taken a tremendous amount of financial and psychological damage. The drop in confidence, real estate and jobs has accelerated and has been unremitting. The typical "market working its way lower" ain't happening. It's more of a 'WHOOSH" with pauses as we hit stuff onna way down. The Fall/Winter bear market rally has brutally betrayed everyone who believed in it. Death Darkness Despair Devastation. Then things REALLY turned to shit. So what to do?

For the 401a, not much. Money in bonds is a comfort. Government securities are more comfortable. Assuming we don't end up in the dark ages or the Pleistocene, corporate bonds offer me possibly serious upside as well as cash flow inna meantime. I'm just about all bonds; mostly gov's but some corporates too. MET Life pays better and more consistently, but it is kinda scary. See below in some previous posts. There's damn little I'm afraid of, but there's a few things I'm respectful of, and the markets' ability to put you into poverty in an eyeblink is one of the things.

Eventually such stuff creates a market bottom; usually only after mentioning stocks or investing causes a fight or projectile vomiting from a complete stranger who overhears you. So I'm gonna wait for the market to prove itself to me before I get serious. Once things burn themselves out, if not down, we may get a bear market rally. There are more effective and nimble ways to play them than in a 401a account, and they are available to me..... Still....

I don't agree with 100% of this, but I do with most of it.
